  1. v1.0.1

  2. Adjust `small` font size normalization

    Make the font size for `small` not quite so small. The default value of
    `smaller` doesn't scale the base font size down by the same proportion
    whatever the base size. IE 6/7/8 end up rendering small text larger than
    most modern browsers. Opera can render it slightly smaller than Chrome
    and Firefox when the base font size is relatively large.
    The previous size of `75%` was a bit too small.
  3. Minor change to test file

    Switch from to for placeholder images.

  1. Remove .gitignore

  2. Minor consistency adjustments

    Normalize comments and ordering.
  3. Reintroduce fix for WebKit audio/video control bug

    This fix was first introduced to deal with Chrome < 13 destroying the
    appearance of native `audio` and `video` button controls when
    `-webkit-appearance` is set on `input[type="button"]`. See #20
    Android 4.0.* seems to use a version of WebKit that contains this bug.
    See: h5bp/mobile-boilerplate#121 the fix needs to be reintroduced.

  1. Revert addition of input placeholder rules

    This commit reverts the following 5 commits:
    The `:moz-placeholder` rule doesn't have the desired effect because any
    subsequent rule with higher specificity will result in the Firefox bug
    resurfacing. There is no way to ensure that Firefox doesn't change the
    color of the placeholder text. Example:
    The `:focus::webkit-input-placeholder` normalization is being removed
    because the current Chrome / Safari on Lion OSX behaviour is allowed in
    the spec, Firefox is set to implement the same behaviour, and other
    browsers may follow suit for usability reasons.
    Some browser differences like these - low importance and in flux - can
    be allowed to evolve and settle before assessing whether or not they
    need or merit normalization.

  1. Fix indentation and update timestamp

    Correct the indentation for the WebKit placeholder focus rule and move
    the placeholder rules to the bottom of the forms normalization.
    Update the timestamp.

    Addresses placeholder text remaining visible on focus in Chrome

    jonathantneal authored
    The placeholder attribute in Chrome does not work to spec. This makes the text transparent on focus to work like Firefox, Safari, and the spec. Credit goes to @chadbaudoin for bringing this up in his pull request #86 and this Chrome bug is further documented at  and my own test is at

    Add placeholder color normalization

    jonathantneal authored
    As @mathiasbynens points out, webkit has already set the placeholder, and it has set it as darkGray (#A9A9A9)
  4. @jonathantneal

    Add placeholder color normalization

    jonathantneal authored
    The browser-defined style for placeholder text color is overwritten by style for input elements in Firefox. Adding :-moz-placeholder style overrides that, bringing Firefox inline with other browsers.
    @mathiasbynens made a test case for this @
    This change improves consistency of placeholder style between Chrome, Safari, and Firefox browsers.

  1. Remove height from `audio:not([controls])` in iOS5

    A bug in iOS5 means that `audio` elements without controls are not
    entirely hidden. They retain some height, as demonstrated in this test
    The fix is to add `height: 0` to the rule.
    Fix #69

  1. Add `summary` to the block-level display rule for HTML5 elements

    Legacy browsers, including IE6/7 and Firefox 3, do not make the
    new HTML5 `summary` element block-level by default. This is
    contrary to the HTML5 recommendations and the behaviour of modern
  2. Remove `hr` and separate some margin normalizations

    Recommend that people supporting IE6/7 do not use the `hr` element
    at all. It requires far more work than just normalizing margins.
    IE6/7 do not collapse margins set on `hr` with margins of pre- or
    proceeding elements.
    Separate the margin normalizations for `p` and `pre` from that for
    `h3`. Despite sharing the same margin value, headings are
    qualitatively different from these other elements. Both in terms
    of customisation and debugging using browser tools, it is cleaner
    to keep the margins of heading separate.
  3. @jonathantneal

    Normalize typography

    jonathantneal authored
    The margin of many elements in IE6/7 is set by 'pt', not relative to the root font-size. This is contrary to the HTML5 spec and all other modern browsers, including IE8+.
    If people need to customize margins, they can either edit normalize.css directly or override later in the source. But at least any non-customized elements will behave consistently now.
  4. Remove `details` from the rule applying padding-left to lists.

    No browsers apply left padding to `details` by default.
  5. Add interactive content tests to demo.html

    Initial addition of a `details` and `summary` test to the demo.
    These are new HTML5 elements and there is not yet widespread
    browser implementation of their interactive functionality.

  1. Update CSS comments

  2. Normalize headings

    There are various inconsistencies surrounding headings that make
    this change worth trialing. The font-size of headings in IE6/7
    isn't relative to the root font-size (see #61). Modern browsers
    set the `h1` font-size based on the depth of nesting in certain
    HTML5 sectioning elements. This change overcomes both the issues.
    At the same time, the margins are being normalized so that they
    are consistent and `em`-based. If people need to customise the
    heading font-size and margin, they can either edit normalize.css
    directly or override later in the source. But at least any non-
    customised headings will behave consistently now.
    Close #41
  3. Demo: add disabled input test and other minor updates.

    Include an `input` and `button` disabled attribute style test.
    Remove `initial-scale` from the meta viewport and add the `lang`
    attribute to `html`.
